Meanwhile, on Monday, May 3, Mumbai’s civic body, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) informed that the beneficiaries in the 18-44 age group need to abide by the fresh rules for getting vaccinated in Mumbai.

According to reports, citizens who have registered themselves in the CoWIN app and who have been given the prescribed immunisation centre and time (slot) would be given the jab.

The rules are as follows:

1) Covid-19 vaccination only for 18 to 44-year-olds today

2) Only beneficiaries in the 18-44 age group who have booked a slot will be administered vaccine

3) No walk-ins at centres

4) 45 and above due for the second dose will be updated about dates eventually

5) Carry an ID



On the other hand, earlier, the BMC had to halt COVID-19 vaccination for the 45-plus age group along with the health and frontline workers as there has been no supply of the vaccine for some time now. Moreover, at the state level, too, the stocks are depleted, said a senior official of the public health department. However, at such a time, the Maharashtra government has begun the next phase of inoculation from May 1, where all between 18-44 years of age can get vaccinated.

Meanwhile, an official said that the state has not received any fresh stock from the Centre since April 26. The vaccination drive in the state had gathered momentum in the second fortnight of April, with an average of three lakh people being vaccinated in a day. The figure had almost reached four lakhs on one day.
